    Thank you for your help.
    I went to Toshiba and got a run around.
    I went to Fry's Electronics and no one knew what I was talking about, let alone speak English.

How do I remove the DVD Drive on a Toshiba Satellite 1955-S805 laptop and where can I buy a new one


To remove the drive you will need to remove the small screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the drive in place. Look for a CD symbol near a screw aproximatly 6 inches in from the DVD drive center. Remove that screw and the DVD should slide out. The best place to get a replacement drive is Ebay Do a search for the model and DVD and you should see many for sale

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!


  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          Does the toshiba satellite a135 s2276 accomodate a second hard drive?


          You won't find internal room to place a second hard drive, if that's what you're asking. Most laptops simply do not have the internal space, especially thin-line units.

          What you could do for extra storage space is purchase an external drive.

          Toshiba satellite A105 operating system not found, wife dropped laptop


          usually a harddrive is designed to withold a drop (to some extent), so one of 2 things happen. either the head of the hard drive touched the drive (internally), and killed the hard drive, or the hard drive simply got loose where it connect. i would unscrew where the harddrive goes (easy don't panic about it, 1 or 2 scres tops) and take the hard drive out then put it back in. if the harddrive is ok, u should be back in business.

          Toshiba laptops satellite 4090


          Hi, The laptop you purchased is an older model. It will use most any IDE laptop hard drive. The drive you mentioned from your Dell will work in it. You will need to pull the hard drive and put the sliders or hardware off the old one on to the new one. Look here for more info on your laptop. Look under portables.
